PDW-700 camcorder is a popular member of Sony's XDCAM family, equipped with three 2/3-inch type CCDs – a newly developed "Power HAD FX" progressive CCD with 1920 x 1080 effective pixels. It also offers very high quality HD recording at a data rate of up to 50Mbps using the MPEG-2 4:2:2P@HL compression, and provides multi-format recording flexibility including 1080i, 720P and SD, with HD/SD conversion and cross conversion between 1080i and 720P.

However, Sony PDW700 XDCAM camcorders' video format is MXF, using this MXF footage on Mac is a big problem. If you try to import PDW-700 HD MXF footages to Adobe Premiere Pro CC/CS6/CS5 for further editing, you may meet some incompatible issues. Thus, if you want to import and edit Sony XDCAM PDW-700 MXF in Premiere Pro in a flawless way, you need to convert MXF to MPEG-2 first with a professional video conversion app.
